Golden Harvest hired director James Glickenhaus after his success with movies such as The Exterminator (1980), but rifts began to surface between Glickenhaus and Jackie Chan and his team during shooting. This would lead to Chan re shooting sections of the film for an alternate Asian release version of the film. See more »

This movie is a lot better than people say it is. Sure, it's not a typical Jackie Chan movie, but it's good anyway. It has lots of action and is better than most of the buddy cop movies of the 1980's. Don't expect this to be like all of his other movies and you may like it. I did.
